We all know that nowadays a mjority of people use Android Phones/Tablet and Apple Phone/Tablets. So there is a strong need of an app from upwork by using which we can record our hours while working on our hourly project of upwork. Its not a big thing to buld but needs upwork attention.
So please whoever agrees to my point please post your positive sugessions in reply to my post so that we all can reach out upwork administrators regarding our issue.
So, you want to work on mobile device for a hourly project and bill client 4 hour while it'll hardly takes 2 hours on computers ?
UpWork already has an Android and iOS apps for communication with the client and i'm quite sure they won't build time tracker for mobile devices in near future.
Agree.. a mobile app tracker will not only benefit us hourly workers.. but also clients who can get their tasks and work done much faster..
Hope upwork will make an app tracker for mobile devices available across all OS platforms.
First iPad nowdays is much faster than most of laptops. So for jobs like Social Media Managment iPad is much better choice to work. Second if you are a Mobile QA and you have to test an Android or iOS application, how you are going to do that correctly ? The only option is mirroring the screen of mobile device to PC, BUT there is a big but, tracker can't count your activity and will just do stupid screenshots without activity. So the Android and iOS applications will HELP the clients not CHEAT them !
An Android version of the time tracking tool would be great for me since I work on a Chromebook as my primary mobile development device. I can install the Ubuntu version of the time tracker using the Linux container support but it doesn't have access to my full desktop, Chrome browser, or terminal to include in the screenshots.
This is nonsense. Imagine you have a task that is to read an article, do research, watch some videos, based on which then you'll do something, say, create a business plan. Or there are agencies that gather here on Upwork people for specifically mobile work, like SIM activation, or calling to places to ask stuff. Those are mobile tasks.
And when we are talking tablets and mobiles, we mean actual tablets. Imagine tablets like I have, Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+, which is more powerful than half of the people's computer, and its a portable work tablet with a keyboard and all the stuff. Working on this is faster and more efficient than working on a laptop, say, when you're working in a car or in a train or in an aeroplane.
So time tracking app for android is very much needed indeed.
It is regularly reported in this thread and others like it that no mobile platform supports automatic screenshots. I suspect screenshots to be the primary "core functions" Vladimir mentioned in the last official word on this.
Screenshots can be finessed by mirroring one's working mobile device screen onto a computer running the tracker; that does not satisfy the mouse/keyboard requirement.
